Washington quarterback Johnny DuRocher was knocked out of their November 11th game against Stanford with a concussion. The concussion was considered severe enough to have DuRocher transported to the UW Medical Center for further observation. What the doctors found was a lot more than a simple concussion.

"They found a tumor the size of a golf ball," DuRocher told Dawgman.com Sunday night. The week after the Stanford game, he ended up having three CAT scans, as well as an MRI, and did not travel for Washington's final regular-season game against Washington State on November 18th.

DuRocher will have surgery to remove the tumor on November 30th. The tumor is not expected to be cancerous in nature. The fourth-year junior is done playing football, but it sounds like he could be cleared for baseball if the surgery is successful.

We'll have more from DuRocher after the surgery.
